Promotional Information

"No one is in a better position to support and inform parents than Ann Pleshette Murphy, whom every parent can look to with extreme confidence because her years of personal experience as a mother, unlimited access to experts and perhaps most important, the special warmth and honesty with which she approaches the joys and challenges of parenthood. As the extraordinarily successful and highly respected of Parents for more than ten years, she has been able to bring a unique perspective to supporting, advising, and best of all understanding child-rearing issues--always going beyond the obvious and reaching out with depth and empathy. I am convinced that any parent who picks up this book will gain insight and increased confidence as a result of her sage and clear advice and I am thrilled to recommend it." -Nancy Samalin, author of Loving Each One Best and Loving Without Spoiling "Ann Pleshette Murphy is every Mom's--and Dad's--best friend. She has captured the complexities, joys, and sorrows of parenting and presented them in ways that help us manage the usual and unusual crises of caring for children in the midst of a busy life while explaining enough of what is motivating children's behavior that parents can take on the task of problem solving for themselves. She is like a good parent to her readers: she lends a helping hand, she is a supportive voice in your ear, but her greatest joy is seeing you go off on your own, confident and competent." --Samuel J. Meisels, President, Erikson Institute, author of Winning Ways to Learn "Ann Pleshette Murphy knows what to expect after you're expecting. Her stories and insights about mothering do more than teach the facts of children's development. This is a book about adult development--about how running the emotional gauntlet of parenting changes us forever. It's practical, touching, and sobering all at the same time." --Justin Richardson, M.D., co-author of Everything You Never Wanted Your Kids to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid They'd Ask) "Ann Pleshette Murphy is one of my heroes." --T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. "Samuel Butler said 'I care for the truth not for truth's sake, but rather for my own.' Annie Murphy has told us rare and liberating truths about parenting, and though she says they are for her sake, the rest of us are wise to share in the bounty. A skilled journalist, she is incredibly observant of herself and her children without being self-serving or narcissistic in the rendering. As a father-husband, I found myself wanting to draw close my own wife-working mother page after page, newly appreciative of her gifts to me and our kids. Her respect for her kids, and ours, sets a standard for parenting books." --Kyle Pruett, pediatrician, author of Fatherneed: Why Father Care is as Essential as Mother Care for Your Child "A beautiful insight into the joys and sorrows of motherhood, this book by Annie Murphy is at once personal and meaningful, psychologically sophisticated and practical, and an emotional lifeline to mothers everywhere as they journey through the confusing yet rewarding stages of motherhood. The author's open and caring style reassures while it teaches, supports while it shares. This is a book not to be missed. Mothers, their children, and their loved ones will have their lives improved by this significant work by Annie Murphy." --William Pollack, author of Real Boys "Heartwarming, witty and wise...let Annie be your guide on this charming tour through motherhood." --Harvey Karp, MD, pediatrician, author of The Happiest Baby on the Block
